Bailey Library Meeting Rooms

The meeting rooms of the Bailey Public Library are intended primarily for Bailey Library, Winthrop Library Foundation, and Friends of the Bailey Library meetings, programs and events. When not needed for these purposes, the rooms are available for a fee, as set by the Library Board of Trustees, to individuals, community groups and organizations and to local businesses. Permission to use meeting rooms is revocable and does not constitute a lease, nor does it imply that the library endorses the aims, policies, views or activities of the group, organization or business using the room. Anyone using the library’s meeting rooms must abide by the terms of this policy. All juvenile groups must have adequate adult supervision. In order to assure availability for the primary uses, no application may be granted more than 30 days in advance.

HOW TO APPLY >>
Organizations that wish to schedule a room may make an application in writing to the Adult Services Librarian or Director.

Allocation of the facilities will be approved, conditionally approved, or rejected by the Bailey Library Board of Trustees at their next regularly scheduled meeting from the time of application. Board meetings are held on the second Monday of each month at 6:00pm. The Director may approve one-time facility use requests for exempt organizations (see below). Availability of the rooms is generally limited to library operating hours. Additional fees for overtime staffing (if available) will be assessed for requests outside operating hours.
